Function and Applications
Pair of conductor spheres, for quantitative measurement of electrostatic forces with the assistance of the torsion dynamometer.
Equipment and technical data
- Extremely light conducting spheres (plastic with conducting surface) with rigid suspension rods to be fixed.
- With clamping screws to the lever arm of the torsion dynamometer.
- Force measurement without trajectory through the compensation method avoids measuring errors due to electrostatic induction.
- Total distance between sphere centre and suspension arm 370 mm.
- Sphere diameter: 38 mm.
